Il libro

The University of Genoa, rooted in the heart of the city in the building designated in 1634 as the College of the Society of Jesus, has reinforced its presence among sites of great historical importance. The acquisition of Palazzo Balbi Senarega in 1972 was the prelude to the attainments of Palazzo Balbi Cattaneo, Palazzo Rebuffo Serra and Palazzo Belimbau, while since the post-war period the Villa Giustiniani Cambiaso has been destined for the University and, at the end of the 20th century, the great project for the reuse and restoration of the Albergo dei Poveri was in progress. An added value for students of all disciplines, from engineers to humanists, who are exposed to the extraordinary historical and artistic testimony of the monumental heritage during their studies at all levels. A value that is shared with the city, as many of these areas have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2006, within the site Genova: Le Strade Nuove and the Sistema dei Palazzi dei Rolli.
